Geocache Description:


Kolka Evangelical Lutheran Church was buildt in 1886. The
foundations was laid by the estate owner of Dundaga Karl Ludvig
Ferdinand fon der Osten – Saken. He also left a message for
future generations in the church tower.

It is believed that the first church in Kolka was built around 1040
by the Swedes. But the inscription on the old altar piece
“Anno 1648” suggests that the church in Kolka was
already in 17th century, although there are no written confirmation
of that. A land for parish was granted in 1833 and in the same year
the Kolka Evangelical Lutheran Church was built and
consecrated.

In the Crimean War, 1855, rifle bullets and cannon balls pierced
wooden church walls, doors, windows, roof and also the altar piece.
There even exploded a bomb, but the church didn’t burn down.
In the 1879 the chursh had to be dismanteled because it had
dilapidated.

In 1885 in the place of the old church was built a new stone church
by the architect T. Zeilers plan. During the Soviet period the
church was demolished and arranged in the warehause. The last
service was held in 1969.

With the Revival of Latvian nation, this once devastated stone
church was reborn. Church restoration began in 1992, but the
renewed church consecration took place in the autumn of 1993. It
now has a modern style altar painting donated by the artist Helena
Heinrihsone in 1993.

vestijumu nakamajam paaudzem baznicas torna apalaja bumba lika
Dundagas muižas ipašnieks Karls Ludvigs Ferdinands fon
der Osten - Sakens. Pastav uzskats, ka pirmo baznicu Kolka
